Thanksgiving Break Friday Eve!

Have I mentioned lately that I am very thankful to be part of your day at Durham!

Today we completed the Thursday section of our warm-up #13-the CNN section will be tomorrow and we will turn that in.

We also watched a video “Road to Revolution” and saw the places and people we have talked about this week!  Very cool that we have access to these primary artifacts!  (another thing to add to our grateful list).

Whoops and it is hump day for sure!

Sorry kiddos-just saw that my post from yesterday didn’t update!

We finished the notes on the Russian Revolution and seeing the events of this time period through the words and eyes of the czar’s youngest daughter Anastasia.

Warm-up #13 is due on Friday.

Propaganda Museum Prep!

Today we did some prep work for our “visit” tomorrow to the Propaganda Museum!  Meet in the Digital Classroom!

Our notes today introduced us to some propaganda techniques and examples to make our visit more meaningful!

Have you checked your grades?  Especially if you have missed any school to make sure you are all caught up.

Holocaust Heroes

Today we started Warm-Up #12.  Homework is to reflect on yesterday’s speaker (Monday on the warm-up).  If you were absent or unable to attend the presentation-listen to the video and reflect upon the experience of the speaker. Herbert Kohn Anti-Jewish Laws

We also began a focus on the UPSTANDERS (Heroes) of the Holocaust-those that made a different choice.  We will finish tomorrow.  If you were absent, I will be at school at 8:30 to get you caught up!  I will pick you up at the cafeteria at that time!
